Ah Nyeint

Bookmark and Share

Ah-nyeint is a dance performance solos by women; with the youngest performing first and the leader, who is usually the owner of the troupe, taking on the last and longest part of the evening's repertoire.

The costume of the Ah-nyeint dancer is a long tight-sleeved jacket flaring out over the hips in curvy crescents, supported by thin strips of bamboo pushed through the hemmed edge. The white train on her sarong is also much longer than for classical dancers and her sarong is more colourful, woven in intricate patterns or sewn with gold and silver. She holds a fan in her hand, with a long scarf draped over her shoulders.
